St. Margaret's School sent the class of 2017 on their way rejoicing on June 3 at their 94th annual commencement exercises. Lauren Block Bauer, vice president of Elm Street Development in McLean, Virginia gave the commencement address.
Bauer, who is a former Board of Governors member and alumna of St. Margaret's (1997), commented in her address, "As a graduate of St. Margaret's, you have the intellectual ability and the tools you need to navigate college and beyond. You have learned the importance of your physical well-being. You know how to take care of yourselves and be kind to yourselves. You are socially responsible; caring, empathetic, thoughtful of others and our fragile earth. You know how to help others. You are spiritually mature."
